(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – In a stunning development that almost no one saw coming, former President Donald Trump achieved a major legal victory in a pending criminal case involving the Trump National Golf Club Westchester. This came as a relief to Trump amidst several ongoing legal troubles, including an indictment connected to classified documents at Mar-a-Lago.
Specifically, Miriam Rocah, the District Attorney for Westchester County, New York, concluded a two-year inquiry into the golf club’s tax practices in Ossining, as reported by ABC 7 News.
On Thursday, Rocah’s office announced the end of the investigation, stating no criminal charges would be filed against Trump.
According to ABC 7 News, the office issued a statement saying:
“The Westchester County District Attorney’s Office conducted an investigation regarding certain properties owned by Donald J. Trump and/or the Trump Organization located in Westchester County, New York. Our investigation is now closed. We approached this investigation as we do all of our investigations, objectively, and independent of politics, party affiliation and personal or political beliefs.”
Reacting to the news, Trump stated on Truth Social, “Closing the investigation WAS THE HONORABLE THING TO DO IN THAT I DID NOTHING WRONG, BUT WHERE AND WHEN DO I GET MY REPUTATION BACK?”
Despite this legal victory, Trump still grapples with multiple state and federal investigations.
A federal grand jury recently indicted him on 37 counts, including 31 of intentionally keeping national defense information related to classified documents. This indictment made him the first ex-president in U.S. history to face federal criminal charges. Trump pleaded not guilty to these charges on Tuesday.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) appointed Special Counsel Jack Smith to manage the case after the FBI found hundreds of classified documents at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate last August. Trump has consistently denied any wrongdoing throughout the investigation. Smith stated last week that Trump is being charged with violating national security laws and conspiring to obstruct justice.
Earlier this year, Trump was indicted in another investigation led by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Brag. This investigation focused on a finance violation allegedly committed by Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016. Trump is also under scrutiny for events linked to the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021, and his suspected involvement in efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Georgia.
Despite these legal troubles, Trump continues his bid for the presidency in the 2024 election, ignoring calls for him to drop out due to his ongoing legal complications.
